phillipatMTCPhillip holds a well defined position within the realm of Australian millinery. 

A Raconteur by nature, he does his most important talking his truth through his hats. 

From a lifetime shaped through traditional workroom experience, Phillip constantly reinvents what it means to be a contemporary milliner through striving to keep headwear relevant, interesting and desirable.

Whether his hat be bound for the street, screen or stage, Phillip’s critical eye for detail is a constant upon which collaborators, clients and creatives alike have come to rely.

'A hat is nothing if it does not fit: does not fit the head, does not fit the brief, does not fit the personality; does not fit the times.’ says Phillip.
